Apparently New York has letterpress fever. Or to trainwreck two different clichés: Print isn’t dead, it’s just evenly distributed. I’m pretty excited about all the work here. I fell out of my letter-writing habit this year (though I’ve kept up on postcards); 2010 seems like a good time to re-up.

Dictator Goods – If you can’t say something nice… this will do nicely.

Ross Macdonald – He makes props for movies, he makes posters, he designs book covers. He probably wears overalls.

More after the jump.

The Hermitage – Not only a letterpress, but a by-appointment-only seller of vintage books. In Bushwick!

The Forgetful Gentleman The elephant logo really only makes sense if you know the name of the company, but let’s not split hairs. I have no idea if these guys are New Yorkers or not, actually. (via)

Also: Letterpress classes at the Center for Book Arts, if you’re feeling crafty.

    Did you read the Brian Francis Slattery? Good stuff.

  2. We like the New York fevers as they tend to spread across the country.

    Nice selection of work. The Forgetful Gentleman cards are handsome as is the hardwood box they come in.

    Thanks for posting.
